Bridal Hair Accessories
When it comes to choosing your bridal hair accessories you will find you have a lot of choice…from clips, combs and hair-pins to flower crowns, wreaths and tiaras!
The main rule to follow is to ensure that the hair accessory you choose will compliment your wedding dress, hairstyle and jewellery.
The overall theme and setting of the wedding also plays a part. For instance, if your wedding features a stately home setting, a tiara can work beautifully.
For an outdoor sunny wedding, you may wish to choose something more dramatic and sparkly to catch the light.
Some brides choose to make their hair accessory a main feature, opting for bold and colourful floral wreaths and flower crowns. The perfect choice for hair down styles and boho brides.
Look at the fabric in your dress, are there any ‘sparkly’ or ‘pearly’ elements, or is the material matte? It’s lovely to tie in your hair accessory with the types of fabric in your dress.
For example, lace bridal hair combs can really compliment a lace gown. While a crystal hair accessory will work beautifully with a dress that features crystal detailing.
The colour tones of your dress can also be used as a guide for selecting a complimentary hair accessory.
There is a trend for beautiful Pearl hair accessories, the examples shown above are all currently available from Etsy.com
Any hair accessories you choose should work colour tone wise with your jewellery. As with your dress, it can be nice to match up elements of the detail (pearls, crystals, diamonds) between your jewellery and hair accessory.
If you decide to wear a veil, make sure that the hair accessory you choose can be worn with the veil, or have one of your bridesmaids on duty to help you put it on once the veil is taken off.
